MB HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, February 14, 2012 1 PET BEFORE THE CARPET CHOOSE FLOORING CAREFULLY Janita Singh Dogs and carpets are not a good combination. TOP TIPS When choosing floor coverings, keep in mind things such as maintenance requirements, especially if you have a family and pets or you don't have time to constantly clean and polish floors. Today many wooden floors are resistant to staining, scratching and other damage due to the new generation of sealants. Likewise, thanks to new technology, you can now find many non-marking and more durable carpets. Other options include picking a darker colour carpet to hide spills and stains. Other floor covers, such as tiles, are scratch resistant and very durable, making them a great investment. Polished concrete and tiles are also very low maintenance once sealed. They are easy to clean as well. TREADING THE BOARDS WE have a dog. We also have carpets. As many pet owners will tell you, there are times when these two don't go together very well. So after much debate a decision has been made -- the dog stays and the carpet goes, taking with it comfort and changing the feel and appeal of the house. Having a pet in the house can be one of the factors that will determine your choice of floor covering. If your preference is car- pet, you'll need something more heavy-duty and dur- able, stain-guard treated and perhaps in a colour similar to your pet's fur. There are several things that need to be considered when picking floor cover- ings. It will depend on your personal choice, visual appeal and feel, the size of the room and the amount of floor traffic in the area. There are other things, such as energy saving, cost and after-care to be taken into account. And, because flooring is a significant expense when furnishing, it is worth tak- ing the time to think it through thoroughly and research properly. Seen any great ideas?
